More Cold Running

Today I probably set a record for the coldest it's been that I've run outside: 16 deg. Truth be told it was not really that bad; actually kinda pleasant. I did 4.4 miles - very slowly, about an 8:50 pace (39 minutes total). But the weather really felt fine. I'd much prefer 16 degrees and little wind (8 mph, wind chill was listed as 6 deg - but I didn't feel it), compared to 30 degrees and 30 mph winds. I'll aim for another 2 weeks of this 'taking it easy' - before maybe adding a third day of running - or some swimming a the Y in February and March. Hopefully by then, I'll have a 10K pegged on my calendar that I can get excited for.
